Whether it’s an accident involving two cars or ten, a pedestrian or bicyclist, a motorcycle or a motor home, all are considered motor vehicle accidents. New York Law treats motor vehicle cases differently than all other kinds of accidents. In fact, motor vehicle negligence and insurance claims are regulated by their own unique Traffic, No Fault and Serious Injury Threshold laws in New York.
A lawyer who undertakes to represent a person injured in an auto accident must understand the intricacies and interplay of the laws and how they apply to the facts of your case. Additionally, the interpretation of these laws by the Courts can change from year to year. In fact, even though they are all New York State Laws, they may be interpreted differently from one County’s court to another. Your attorney should know the difference and be well versed with the law, its evolution and interpretation.
